Donald Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is going to Kiev to advocate for inquiries that could help the reelection bid of his boss. Those include claims of Democratic "collusion" in 2016 and the alleged corruption of Joe Biden. Giuliani told the New York Times that he would be departing for Kiev in the "coming days." The lawyer said that he hopes to meet with newly-elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to persuade him to press ahead with investigations into two cases, which may hurt President Trump's competition during next year's election. One, the newspaper explains, is the claim that Ukrainian officials tried to undermine Trump's 2016 campaign by leaking documents incriminating his then-adviser Paul Manafort. The now-jailed lobbyist worked for Ukraine's ousted president Viktor Yanukovich before his Trump campaign gig. The new authorities in Kiev were investigating corruption in the previous government and found Manafort's name on a ledger of alleged criminal payments.
